Vintage Apple Macintosh Centris 610 M1444 20MHz 68LC040 Desktop:
You are offerding on a vintage Macintosh Centris 610, which I have had in my collection as an eventual repair project to run certain System 7 software, but never got around to before the need to sell and make space arose. I am intending to sell to another collector who may find fun in restoring the machine, which likely needs capacitor replacement. It has sat disused on my project shelves for almost a year now.
I do not have the means to test the machine at the moment, but the last time it was used, it powered on and gave a [?] floppy prompt upon boot, likely indicating the hard drive is toast, but that the rest of the machine is fine. Capacitor repair on Macintosh models from before 1997 is typical, so any collector looking to restore this machine should prepare themselves to do that.
The machine is in good cosmetic condition. There is minor dirt on it that can be quickly cleaned with alcohol and paper towels, and the "Centris 610" badge on the front, while still permanently attached, has lifted slightly on one corner but could easily be glued back down as it would have been from the factory. The inside is very clean, especially for a machine of its age (see photos).
The machine is on the heavier end of pizzabox-form-factor Macs, meaning it will be shipped via UPS ground shipping in a padded box so as to ensure safer transit.
